No matter which hat I’ve worn — architect, writer, poet, critic, editor, or visual artist — the work has centered on connecting through language and image, story and idea. I’m fascinated by our collective determination to build, reshape, or restore from fragments a narrative about the world and ourselves in it, and how we imagine the incomplete story with the unknowable end. But that story is never entirely a reliable one. Through manipulation, layering, weaving, and stitchery, my work scrambles perception and shifts the view to offer a re/vision, in order to spur questions, to reveal the flaws and inadequacies of a man-made history, to re-see – rather than blindly accept as accurate – our text and image inheritance.
